Roberto Carlos doesn't do much defensively, now, does he?

United have a small chance but like the Real Madrid side several seasons ago Milan just edge them out in the 'class' department.

Rest of my predictions:

Tie #1: Real Madrid v Juventus
Juventus. Because Madrid have been very, very inconsistent this year while Juventus have been more or less steamrolling everyone in Serie A.

Tie #2: Porto v Inter Milan
Inter. Porto, despite all the exits, still have a good side, but not good enough.

Tie #3: Barcelona v Chelsea
Damn, this is tough. We're talking big, in-form clubs who are dominating (more or less) their respective leagues. I think if either wins the first leg they'll go through with a draw in the second.

Tie #4: Werder Bremen v Lyon
Lyon. Gut feeling and a certain Mr Juninho Pernambucano.

Tie #5: Liverpool v Bayer Leverkusen
Two rather inconsistent sides in their leagues (and in the CL as well). For all we know this will be two 0-0s and a penalty shootout.

Tie #6: PSV Eindhoven v Monaco
Monaco. Both have lost loads of key players but I think Monaco will just edge this one.

Tie #8: Bayern Munich v Arsenal
Bayern don't strike me as one of the European giants of football anymore despite the fact they still have amazing players like Makaay and Ballack. Arsenal on the other have an immense pool of talent and have every chance of winning the whole shebang this season. So obviously, Bayern are going to win this.

If you can catch highlights of Chelsea's game tonight do so.
I overheard one guy on the way out say that it was like watching the Harlem Globetrotters and he wasn't wrong.

oh and did Carvalho pick up an injury or something? he wasn't even in the 16 today, which is a surprise.

Yeah Carvalho is injured, they think he will almost certainly miss the Aston Villa game on Boxing day, he might be back for the Portsmouth game a couple of days later but will definately be back for Liverpool on New Year's day.
Ferrira must read my comments in here he was very effective today.

4-2 for us against Palace...could've been 5, if Rooney had scored from the spot. Shame. And AT LAST Everton dropped points! We're only a point behind Arsenal now!! The race is still well and truly on I feel! I dont think Chelsea can continue this way all season..

But I remember saying the same a year ago about another top side..

we won 6-1 against 3rd placed Tranmere. 6-1!! mind you, it did help that they had both keepers injured during the game and were forced to play ex-city player Theo Whitmore (a Midfielder) in goal for the second half... what a xmas present though!

Cant believe Ronaldinho got the World Player of the Year award over Henry. That's a joke. After everything that Henry did to help his team to the incredible season that they enjoyed?! Oh well.

In other ridiculous news, Bolton could be looking at making a bid for our own Ryan Giggs in the January window! What a joke! I know Giggs really wants a long-term contract, but UTD aren't prepared to give him that. I do feel sorry for him. You can tell he really wants to remain at the club that he's been with all his life. I for one don't want to see him go. (Certainly not to bloody Bolton anyway!)
